I worked as a software developer and then decided to go back to and finish the university and finally get my degree. Now, I am in the last semester of my studies. I study full-time for my exams and I finish in June. I wanted to start going to interviews at the end of May and to work in August. Today, we are in March.
One of my former colleagues contacted me and said, she was really happy with her new company and that I'd fit in the team really well. I looked up the company online, and I was still unsure what they exactly do and I couldn't imagine how a typical project would look like, so I went to the first interview and I really liked what I saw. They invited me to the second interview, stating they were really satisfied with the work I have done so far, too. However, as I learn all day, it's difficult to show them my best without risking the success of my exams.
How do I delay the second interview, while minimizing the risk of making them feel as if I were not really interested (or just cancel the whole interview process altogether)? I need at least a month delay.
I didn't interview for a specific position, the company seems to be growing and it appears that they are constantly hiring if they find a good match. The company knows that I can only start in August and that I'm studying for my exams in May-June.
